Armando Ramirez, MD, Guy Voeller, MD, George Woodman, MD. University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis


 The Lap Band is an effective weight loss procedure. Coupled with an imbrication of the fundus and body of the stomach, weight loss results may be enhanced. This is accomplished by reducing gastric capacity and promoting early satiety. The imbricated Lap Band can be performed with minimal morbidity and early results have been promising. Our technique is illustrated in this short video.
